Bait-Blogger on Tumblr Arrested and charged with sex crimes

The popularity of bait-blogs on social media platforms like Tumblr was immense before their imposed porn ban. Gay men would regularly set up fake catfish accounts on Snapchat, Instagram, and Kik to trick unsuspecting men into sending them nudes. Baiters would then sell dropbox folders of their victims to make a profit.
New York Post, reports Derrick Jones, an yr old senior 18, at Monsignor Bonner Catholic High School, was arrested back in 2017 for catfishing more than 100 boys to get them to send him nudes.

Jones would pose as a girl named “Haley” on various apps to reach out to the boys, some of whom were in middle school, WDAU reported. His so-called “Haley” disguise was a real girl whose identity he stole using photos from Tumblr.

“They believed that they were receiving naked pictures of a teenage girl, so they responded to Haley thinking she was interested in them. Unfortunately, it was not,” Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said at a Thursday press conference. Read more here.

Jones pleaded guilty to more than a dozen charges and was sentenced to six to 12 years in state prison in 2018.

Warning: If you see any of these “Bait Shops,” avoid them at all costs. You could be buying recycled illegal links from Derrick Jones.
